Onsenji Temple
The course including this spot : One of Japan's top three ancient hot spring villages

Experience Arima's history in this ancient temple

Originally built over 1,000 years ago by a monk, this temple is an ideal place to get a taste of the area's history. The name literally means "Hot Spring Temple", apt for its surroundings, but instead of hot springs you will find a quiet space for contemplation. Visit in spring to get a typically Japanese picture including the stunning "sakura" cherry blossoms that frame the entrance.
